i've got a little problem with toucan syncing. My goal to achieve is, that I want to keep all my e-mails and address books in thunderbird up to date between my installation on my PC and the portable thunderbird on my stick.
For this purpose, I created two jobs: "ToStick" and "FromStick". As you may guess, the "ToStick" job should copy all files, that have changed, from the local pc onto my stick. And the job "FromStick" should do it vice versa.
I defined two variables:
@thunderbirdprofile@ contains the full path (including the drive letter) to my thunderbird profile on my local pc
@portable_tb_profile@ contains the full path (including the drive letter) to my thunderbird profile on the usb stick
As "function" I selected "Copy", in "other" I selected "retain timestamps" and "retain attributes".
Finally, I use one rule, which does exclude or include specific files.
Now here's my problem: when I want to see the preview for the job "ToStick", in both windows "Source" and "Destination" all files, directories and subdirectories show up. Changed files have a different colour, unchanged files are shown in black.
Now when I select the job "FromStick" (that's the job which should copy all changed files from the stick to my local installation), the destination window only shows one single line containing the path to my thunderbird profile on my local pc. No files, no directories, no subdirectories...
That's something, I did not expect to happen. Even if there are no changed files (means: all files are the same), I would expect to see the files and directories here. These things DO show up, when using the job "ToStick", but not when using the job "FromStick"...
now can anyone help me? does anyone have an idea what's going wrong here?
I'm going on holiday in a few weeks, and want to get my e-mails using thunderbird portable, but if there is no way of synchronizing all the things back to my local pc, this could be a bit more of work...
